People who are left at the margins of development suffer from challenges in all aspects of their lives. In an attempt to achieve just and equitable development for all, we partner with several grassroots groups in India who work on interconnected issues of Sustainable Agriculture, Public Health, Education, Environmental and Social Justice, Women’s empowerment, Livelihoods, and Community Rights. We continue to learn from our partners and the communities they work with by visiting and interacting with them on a regular basis.
